* The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' are undoubtedly the most famous example. Mario's tendency towards this is lampshaded in ''Videogame/SuperMarioRPG''. After Mario beats Jinx, a professional martial artist, in a BonusBoss fight, Jinx and his student decide to incorporate Mario's jumping techniques into their own fighting styles and spend the rest of the game bouncing up and down on one spot trying to emulate Mario.

** Played straight with Luffy's Gear Fourth form; when using this technique he cannot stop bouncing or sit still; but the sheer power behind it makes up for this disadvantage
